Pastry chef has cake and eats it too
Information provided by the Country Club at Castle Pines
The Country Club at Castle Pines is known for its spectacular golf course and amazing views, but one club improvement the members are talking about comes from behind the scenes.
This past May, the club hired pastry chef Amy Gallagher to increase the offering of breads and desserts produced in-house.
Gallagher attended Johnson and Wales University in Providence and went on to work for organic bakeries and boutique wedding cake shops around the country. The members’ response to her work has been overwhelming, as they have shown an insatiable appetite for Gallagher’s delicious creations. Diners start their meal with warm garlic rosemary focaccia rolls and finish with a fresh gelato or perhaps the hot pear crisp with currants.
Gallagher has now expanded her role outside of the kitchen and has started teaching classes to the members of the club. She recently taught a children’s class to 40 members about decorating Halloween pastries, and has an upcoming event to show some of the tips to cake decorating.
The addition of these types of events are just one more reason that the country club has become such a great place for families of the entire Castle Pines area.
